Event Details

Join us on a special Oddities tour of the National Museum of Dentistry, where you will see amazing teeth feats, marvel at George Washington’s choppers (they’re not made of wood after all!), and sing along to vintage dental commercials, tracing the evolution of dentistry from the ancient Egyptians to today and features hands-on exhibits about how to have a healthy smile.
Other items seen on this special Oddities Tour, are Queen Victoria’s dental instruments, Mrs. Tom Thumb’s petite porcelain denture, and the home fluoridation unit used in Senator Robert Kennedy’s home. Learn all about the medieval tooth worm theory, the curious ways people have decorated their teeth, how a dentist first discovered ether to numb the pain, and more.



Meet in the museum lobby at 11 a.m.

Expect tour to take about 1 1/2  hours  

Museum admission is $7


Space is limited to 50 people
